This place sucks as bad as Facebook! I just tried to join today and they told me I joined on the 9th and my username is banana! Isn't that stupid? God can you imagine banana ? oh my! I have tried to change it but so far no good. Oh well just had to rant and rave a little. Anyhow I've tried to post a pic of what I'm working on now.

Wish I had something like this ,60 plus years ago! My first go cart was a self propelled lawnmower and an old bed frame with no clutch no brakes and two ropes for steering but it was fun!!

Now that is hot rodding!!
Some throttles have a stop so full throttle can not be achieved. But the sprocket changes will also slow down the top speed but will swap for more torque.
The best I did with my kid was teach throttle control.

Yeppers it has a throttle stop. Gonna be too cold in my shop to work soon. That's when I will spend my time in the house repairing cracked plastic. The only thing that I am worried about is sprocket alignment!

I am afraid it will be a rocket 🚀 even with a stock motor a throttle stop and different sprocket.
not to fond of throttle stops not good for the clutch but gearing it lower can lower top speed but will have more take off from the dig so lower the gear if it's to tuchy than change the length of the pivot on the cable or a stop

Yes I agree 👍. I am 72 and very mechanical. Got my first motorcycle at 16. Had to stop riding when my knees would not hold up my old Harley. Spent most of my life working on something with a motor of some kind. but I am still learning.
I will guarantee you all one thing. I would never have nerve to go 70 mph on mini quad that's only 3 ft long like it would have when my nephew bought it.
